Works in Wheezy.


I thought it was too until I did
wtopa@dj:~$ ls -l /var/log/boot*
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 6.9K Jan 12 13:07 /var/log/boot
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 6.8K Jan 12 10:50 /var/log/boot.0
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 2.0K Jan 12 09:55 /var/log/boot.1.gz
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 2.0K Jan 11 07:57 /var/log/boot.2.gz
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 2.0K Jan 10 14:39 /var/log/boot.3.gz
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 2.0K Jan 10 13:35 /var/log/boot.4.gz

wtopa@dj:~$ cat /etc/default/bootlogd
# Run bootlogd at startup ?
BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes


I am seeing the same on sid! ??????

wtopa@dj:~$ cat /media/sid/etc/default/bootlogd.dpkg-old
# Run bootlogd at startup ?
BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes



UPDATE

Fount the problem. Even though dpkg -l bootlogd said it was installed.
some how back in January the bootlogd executable had been removed.
Aptitude was able to purge/install the package and the log is now
working in wheezy


The Sid is somewhat different. I moved the weird bootlogd.dpkg-old to
bootlogd and restarted that service and it is now working. I think(?)
the problem(s) occurred during the upgrade to bootlogd version
2.88dsf-22, which broke initscripts and sysvinit-utils. Anyway a
reinstall on sid fixed it.

Wheezy. I installed bootlogd and now there is information in /var/log/boot.

But nothing about the firmware failure/missing.

Thats is the info I am looking for.

More suggestions please.
Thanks

bootlogd has been split in a separate package and /etc/default/bootlogd
is now obsolete (you can safely remove it). If you want logging install
the package, if you don't, remove it

Kind regards,
Andrei

I seems that the boot log is started up now by /etc/init.d/bootlog which
in part of initscripts. I can't seem to locate any other reference to
that file.


Thanks Andrei, the removal of bootlogd was not obvious as there is
no mention of bootlogd in the var/lib/dpkg/info/initscriptd.* files
or the addition of the bootlogs in /etc/init.d.
